I love homemade bread, its the bomb. All we ate growing up was homemade bread. To me it was a treat.
We grew most of our food growing up. Canned everything. Picked so many berries I still have nightmares.

Have fun doing your thing.




My mother used to get up at 5 every morning, fire up the wood stove and by 7ish was baking bread for our sandwiches and french toast for breakfast and rolls for dinner.

My fondest childhood memory was waking up to that smell.

It meant I was safe and the world was good.

The first time I ate store-bought bread I think I was about 10.... it was repulsive.

It's a pity that we have gotten to the point where these things are not taught anymore.

Instead we all buy TP and bottled water and freak out if something happens.

Perhaps it's time to get back to the basics.

I can still picture in my mind weeding the garden on my hands and knees. Being a little kid I would look down that row of peas or green beans or whatever and thought the row would never end. But that row would end and we would have to start weeding the next one. But I learned how to grow seeds at a young age. Sometimes we would pull the radishes right out of the ground and eat it. We would knock most of the dirt off. Maybe that is why I rarely if ever get sick.

My odd quirk as a kid was the turnips.

We used to grow turnips to feed to the pigs and for their leaves for salads.

As someone who loves radishes, turnips were a bigger better version... the skin has the same heat, the flesh is sweet and it's a radish on steroids as far as size.

So I would always get in trouble for "accidentally" picking a turnip while weeding and then wandering off into the forest to gnaw on it till it went away.

Good times...

Just got in from sailing on the Gulf.

Groceries, etc were delivered and put up while I was out.

Dinner being delivered. Having tanquerini while I wait.

I'm in a wonderful mood.

Not.

I've been delivering groceries and medicine this afternoon. Also, took fans to those without a/c-it's hot here.

Left sandwiches and water at the park for the regulars-they expect it.

Am very worried about my very elderly, ill parents. Ordered their food etc.

Going home to my 5 rescues and 2 fosters.

Wish life was better for so many.


I often wonder why people HAVE to post things like you did.

Is this what is called virtue signalling?

Because how I was raised, every single thing you posted was just something you did as a good neighbor or person or family member.

We didn't need to make a poster of it afterwards and put it on a telephone pole for everyone to read, we didn't need to send it to the local newspaper so we could get credited for it, we most certainly didn't need to post it online so that others would be informed of how "woke" and "caring" we were.

It's just a part of your day as a responsible citizen and no awards need to be given out.

So hey... kudos for doing your part.

Next time you wipe your butt post the details too, so that we can all applaud and give you the recognition you so deserve.

Those sound awesome!

After things blow over, I have some special seeds to send you too. I have a massive collection. I got a seed suitcase recently. It has a bunch of plastic inserts to house individual varieties because my seed collection is a giant mess right now

My grandfather gave me his seed closet when he died... it used to be a apothecary case.

It's a wooden box with 200 little wooden drawers... 10 by 20.

It took me awhile to learn seeds... like how to harvest your own carrot seeds, lettuce seeds, etc.

I have weird things like Egyptian walking onions from my wife's side of the family from Oklahoma in the 1890's.

They self-propagate... so it's the same plant as 130 years ago.

It's an onion that is a shallot that is kinda a garlic... I use it a lot in cooking.

The Whole Seed catalog is my garden porn.



After this blows over I would love to share seeds with you.

~that came out pretty awkward!~

Ill be growing some Elephant garlic. That's in the leek family. It sure makes peeling garlic easier, although it is mild. I grow the small ones too.

I noticed a couple big parsnips growing out back that I don't remember planting.

I built a 8' x 8' redwood composter out back. It is loaded with Organic straw and alfalfa, organic manures, and kelp, azomite, Epsom salts, and Alaskan fish fertilizer, and fresh Russian comfrey. Its a hot compost set up.

Ive recently gone to "no dig, no till" method in all my gardens, utilizing assorted cover crops, and lots of compost. I don't allow the soil to be barren ever. Even though we have clay soil, my gardens have stayed soft and spongy, with millions of worms. I also built a large red worm bed, and added about 5000 red wigglers. Im having fun

Best of luck to you from Naples - we’ve had the county beaches wide open until a couple of days ago.

Sounds like a nice place for a holiday, or to live, or to just visit.

Whilst practicing self isolation with only the internet, beer, 2min noodles and TP, I'm thinking of ways to go to the pub without going to the pub - like an online pub linked to uber eats/drinks for constant taking and delivery of orders, I build a racing car roll cage and put my la-z-boy with built in toilet & bidet (so no need for TP) in the middle and surround myself with 12 screens showing my mates and the bar staff - all hooked into 7.1 surround sound - 3 additional screens dedicated to the GG's and a news-feed ticker at the top of every screen sponsored by Porn Hub every Friday between 4-6pm, with meat tray raffles, and if you pay enough by 6pm, Porn Hub goes full screen.

Juusst need the funding then I'll go into production.

Quarantine, YouTube, a lotto ticket plus too much time on my hands = funky ideas!

I have a jar of olives and an old hammer that is missing the handle.

Sounds like we're both of like-minds.

Let's team up!


I'll need someone to shoot the butterflies this year... room and board and an internet connection is the deal.

Dinner is at 6pm.





Is he your Mr Tusk?

To me it was funny.

You've just described Idiocracy... perfectly.

Seems that's where the average American is going so...

Gotcha, there was a reference to the 6 o'clock dinner in the movie Tusk, if anyone gets a chance to view that masterpiece then head on over to Netflix.

No need to thank me now.

Little Sister, I'm proud of you and am impressed with what you've accomplished.

There are those of us that'll drop on the front lines of whatever comes, but I'll go happy knowing that there are those who will survive and are thinking right.

What an amazing TREASURE!!!! I'd be giddy with such a gift.
I've been saving some seeds as well but not doing great at storing them lol. Hopefully I will have the time and get better at it! This year I have a very small crop but still going to have fun. Tomatoes, Cucumbers, blackberries, a fig, cherry and orange trees! But they're just starting - still so excited!

If it gets too crappy I'll PM you my address, Brother.

We may need Gunther!

Until then, let's see what happens.

I'm oddly optimistic about where America will go this year.
